Costume!  
I picked up my RAF greatcoat from e-bay today! I unwrapped it there in the car park of the postal depot. Aww, it's a sergeant's coat, with the stripes still on, and a name on the label! It makes me ridiculously happy to know I'll be carefully looking after Sergeant Woolf's coat.

They're fantastic, aren't they? I bought navyboy82 an officer's greatcoat and a frockcoat, both clearly labelled from WW2 (one with the receipt still in the pocket!) - there's something very special about handling something that was once worn "for real" on the front.

Incidentally he has a great tailor if you need one to clean it up...

Mine, I fear, is a little newer than that! Having said that though, I wanted it anyway because accuracy in the costume is not that important - they sew special coats for John Barrowman, because he's allergic to wool.

I hope he wasn't Bad.

I do hope not! Although that would be cool too... :)

Ooh, will we get a picture?

I can try and oblige, although me and photo media are not really friends :) I'm going on holiday tomorrow though - maybe after that!

Wow, that is so cool! Wow!

Only £35 which isn't that much really, considering what I've spent on other costume over the years! :)

YAY, awesome!! :D You gonna go in costume to The Hub?

It depends! If it's the current guests only, then maybe. Bizarrely, if Gareth is there, probably not, because I want to be a relatively sane fangirl around him, you know? Although maybe for the evening party stuff? I'd take it to DragonCon, but I have to think about the weight allowance, dammit!

It's so cool that you're going!!

Awww, yeah it makes sense! If they're having themed parties in the evening I'd definitely go for it because I'd imagine a lot will dress up!

Gah damn weight allowances. I tend to pack double what I need whenever I go away so I have a feeling me and the weight allowances won't be getting along too well. I know, I can't wait for it it sounds so much more amazing than any of the others cons I've been too. Booked my flight ticket on Friday too! Now all I need is a new camera. :D
